6:01 am
right now they are calling that death suspicious. >> the circumstances surrounding the body were such that we believe that it could be a crime scene, we cannot be positive, but we're erring on the side of caution if there is evidence that we preserve that and collect it to make sure we're able to identify suspects at a later time if there is a crime. >> the man's identity and how he died has not been released. >> new objects spotted in the indian ocean in what officials call the most encouraging report so far. this after the search area is actually shifted nearly 700 miles northeast. peggy bunker joins us, why is the search making such a dramatic shift? >> first up i want to let you know there is interesting news from the australian maritime authority in the past minutes really, planes are returning from the search zone, they report that five different planes have spotted what could be possible objects or related debris in this new search area so. this really is the most
6:02 am
encouraging news so far. as you know searchers have been scouring the area in this designated area in the southern indian ocean. overnight new radar -- revealed that flight 370 was traveling much faster than originally thought. the burn rate of fuel would be much quicker indicating that the plane couldn't have made it as far as the initial search. let's take you to a map and show you the difference we're talking about. we were formerly looking in this lower search area where you see possible wreckage along the bottom of the screen. analysts said it's got to be farther north and east, closer to the coast of perth. you can see the new search area. we're also hearing from australian authorities that this does change the game in terms of where they are looking. >> indicates the plane was traveling faster than was previously estimated, resulting in increased fuel usage, and
6:03 am
reducing the possible distance it traveled south into the indian ocean. >> so from what we hear moments ago this looks like it could be very encouraging. that's a good thing. the black boxes had eight days left to throw out those low cater signals. it's about 9:00 in perth, australia. we won't have news until ships arrive. it's very dark there. this is interesting, the reason we're getting this news now is because the planes are returning because it's now nighttime. reporting back what they saw. five said they spotted debris. >> officials in washington say the number of people confirmed dead in that massive mudslide will probably go up today. as of now the official count stands at 16. with about 90 missing. today search and rescue crews are fighting through rain and exhaustion, this is the seventh

6:50 am
expect more in early afternoon into the evening. look at the map though and the rest of the approach. moving smoothly. slowing out of san pablo, a smooth drive through north 580 and west 24 all pretty much as speed. a smooth drive down southbound 880 toward 16th we had a crash but a lot of activity cleared. down in toward hayward south of 280 or 238 we have this starting to build but it's a gentle build past 92, and toward the dumbarton bridge. out of newark. here west 580 shows slowing traditional through pleasanton. the earlier slowdown into sunol that has started to recover. heading down to the south bay nothing dramatic. no major problems. typical slowing from capital
